What is TEDxBerkeley?

Nestled between the San Francisco Bay and lush Northern California foothills, Berkeley is home to the world’s premier public university as well as a vibrant, diverse population that is renowned for its social activism and entrepreneurship. TEDxBerkeley, an award-winning TED-based nonprofit, seeks to capture the spirit of Berkeley by gathering visionary thinkers and leaders from the Bay Area and beyond to spark new ideas, insights, and opportunities. TEDxBerkeley hopes to engage its eclectic audience by featuring unique talks that are intellectually bold, passionate, and unafraid to question and redefine the status quo. Join us on February 8th, 2020 as we explore the remarkable human ability to inspire and the ways in which our various perspectives lead us to become more interconnected.
